Chik is a handsome fellow, with the well shaped face of a young man, framed in slightly wavy black hair that hangs down around his ears. Despite his good looks, he gives off a kind of menacing air that usually makes people somewhat uncomfortable around him. Chik wears a well made breastplate for protection, and the dagger worn at his hip is exposed for all to see.
For anyone who has spent some time with Chik, it’s easy to tell that he is a man with the best of intentions, but who often looses his temper, resulting in fits of rage that often get him in trouble. His friendship is loyal, but hard to earn. Chik doesn’t talk about his past much, but given his emotional problems and the constant battle he seems to be fighting with some inner demon, it’s easy to see that there are some skeletons in the closet.
Chick was abandoned by his father at a young age, and he grew up in an orphanage in Immersea until he was almost nine years old. Being a poor kid with lots of free time in a city of rich nobles, it didn’t take Chik long to develop into a mischievous child who often got into trouble for “acquiring” things that didn’t belong to him. Even though his life took the same form as many of the kids around him, Chik always felt a bit different. Most of the lessons they were taught buy the house-wives seemed to make sense to the other children, while Chik really had to struggle with things to make them make sense. For instance, everyone else seemed to understand that stealing was wrong, and while Chik had that intuition (in a very weak sense), he also had something inside him that told him there was no problem with doing things like that.
If his other mischief wasn’t enough, Chik got into many fights during his younger years, mostly as a result of people picking on his name. Chik hated the name, but he couldn’t let it go for some reason and always refused to use nicknames. After all, it was the only connection he had to his past. One time when he was being harassed by another child who quickly ran to hide by locking himself behind the cellar door, Chik discovered something else about himself – he was able to wield some kind of magic. Not knowing what he was doing, he let the anger within him explode outward and actually destroyed the door in a flash of purple fire, leaving the child behind it scared, and the mistress of the orphanage too worried to keep such a liability around.
And so it was that Chik, now only 12 years old, was abandoned to the world once again-only this time he didn’t mind. He spent a good deal of time traveling around Cormyr, grappling with the things he had been taught as a child and his innate nature that led him to do things that were often objectionable. After traveling for eight years and still carrying on this inner struggle, Chik is both closer to the truth and further away from it. He has accepted the rightness and wrongness of certain kinds of actions, and tries his best to lead a moral life, but he also finds joy in the chaos of life that often accompanies an absence of such morals.
Chik is on his way to Eveningstar right now, hearing that there are ruins about that might be profitable to explore. He enjoys those kinds of jobs since he has some skill at carefully finding his way through dangerously trapped places, but right now he is hoping to find some company to travel with.
If you want a further glimpse into the mind of this troubled young man, read on…
Why in the nine hells would someone name their kid Chik? Aw, never mind that question, I’ve been askin it ever since I was a lad and kids used to make fun of me while I played with them. I suppose my father, whoever the bastard was, must have know that with a name like this, I’d either grow up tough or die trying, and anything in between wasn’t worth the trouble of givin me a proper name. He musta had a harsh view of the world, but I suppose I can’t fault him for that.
Still, it bothers me on nights like this when I sit outside a tavern, bruised up and a couple of silvers short after a bad rumble inside. No real reason for it, but folks just can’t help but make a few jabs when they find out what my name is. Course I can’t help but smash their face in neither…but I suppose we all have our weaknesses. Sometimes I think mine aren’t just weaknesses though, but rather something deep down inside me, pullin my gut this way and that, tryin ta make me do stuff I know better than to.
Strange thing is, it’s that same feeling in my gut that seems to give me the strange powers I have. Ever since I can remember, since my young days living at the orphanage, I always felt like something was different about me, and I knew it was true when I finally blew a hole in the wall on accident with some funny magical power. Memories like that don’t do much for me now. Best I can hope for is to keep on surviving, and god knows it’s a game of dice in this world.
Well I may not have found as much drink as I would have like tonight, and I sure as hell missed my chance with that serving maid, but at least I left one of those fellows with a messed up face. I suppose this town's gonna be tired of me pretty soon, so I might as well start packing. If I remember right, there's a little town called Eveningstar right up the road a ways. Ya, that’s right, I heard there might be some exploring to do around the countryside while I’m there and a small town like that won’t have any trouble in store for someone like me…
By invoking this ability, you gain acute senses that help you manipulate fine objects. You gain a +6 bonus on Disable Device, Open Lock, and Sleight of Hand checks for 24 hours.
At level up, Chik plans to take a level of Spellthief. Following that, he will be progressing through all ten levels of Arcane Trickster.
Dannyalcatraz: IMHO, what D20 needs is something like a Continuity Office(r[s]). DC Comics did something like that when they found that many characters had differing abilities, etc. depending upon what title was being discussed...And, with this in mind, an annual update could be released in either PDF or Magazine form that would contain the rules corrections.
pbd: Or we could eat poor children.

Vardrin uses evil to fight evil; in this case, the power of the Uttercold fiends to fight other scourges of evil. This of course comes at a price, and he must fight his urges in order to make a positive mark in the world.
Vardrin Theese was once a young up-and-comer in the Cormyr War Wizards. Born in Arabel, he felt a sense of duty to his kingdom after all the previous troubles that Cormyr had weathered. In his training, he was among an elite cadre of specially trained evokers; these special wizards were trained in the expert manipulation of energy. Vardrin's arcane thesis and focus was on the use of cold energies, a sometimes under-appreciated element among his peers.
After graduating from his training, Vardrin requested to be stationed in Arabel, close to home. There we worked for several years, furthering his extra-planar and energy-based studies and protection Cormyr's citizens. That was all to change in 1371 DR, and the invasion lead by the "Devil Dragon."
Vardrin Theese stayed for the defense of the city, letting others escape via magic to Suzail. He was to retreat later, but he was captured by orcs that he swore bore the mark of fiends. They tortured him---destroyed his hands, cut out his tongue, did worse things---for days. It was only through the efforts of a rearguard force of Purple Knights that he was eventually rescued. But, by then, Vardrin had changed. His physical wounds could be healed, but not his mental ones.
Vardrin swore revenge, and joined Myrmeen Lhal's quest for vengeance to reclaim Arabel. He sought more power, the arcane power to defeat the fiendish orcs. He withrew into himself, began exploring dark lore normally forbidden to the War Wizards. This is when he discovered the Lords of the Uttercold, and saw a way to power.
Vardrin's arcane might grew; his arcane cold could not be stopped. He was present when Arabel was reclaimed, but it was soon after that his superiors found his taboo studies and expelled him from the War Wizards. Disgraced, and still not satisfied with his revenge (many orcs, probably the fiendish-allied ones that tortured him, escaped), Vardrin began wandering, seeking dark places, gaining more power, but at the cost of his goodness.
Vardrin does not recall exactly when he found and committed to the Ritual of Bonding. He believed the ritual would grant him even more control over the uttercold, allowing him more assured victory over his enemies. He was more than convinced that the ends justified the means, and thought he would firmly be in control.
He was wrong.
Vardrin lost himself for a while. When he controlled himself once more, he recalled only partly the things he had done. He was sickened, ashamed, lost. But it was too late---the ritual was complete, and it was permanent.
Vardrin has spent the time since regaining himself wandering Cormyr, trying to fight off evil, right wrongs, and make up for his past. Revenge still smolders---revenge against the ones who tortured him, revenge against the ones that fooled him with the ritual---but he keeps it low, knowing that it can consume him. He seeks redemption for himself, but only he will know when he has reached it.
Vardrin is outgoing, and prefers the company of others. He was trained to work in groups, and feels at home there. However, ever since the Fall of Arabel, there has been a more secretive and angry side as well. He occasionally has dark mood swings, and can be very aggressive in doing "what needs to be done" when fighting evil. He talks little about his past, however, preferring to focus on the future.
Vardrin sees his path as using the tools of evil against evil. Thus, he is interested in obscure lore, especially outer planar lore. He will take up the banner for causes against tyranny and evil, especially if magical or planar interference is suspected. He is a stalwart friend and implacable foe.
Vardrin is a man approaching middle age (30) and there are marks of a hard life in his green eyes and the white interlacing his red hair and goatee. His hands are calloused and appear to have been severely broken at some time. Though dressed as a common traveller, he carries a weapon by his side and appears to have some familiarity with it. At first glance, nothing about Vardrin speaks to his arcane power or former membership in the War Wizards, but on closer look, there is this otherness---his very pale skin, a coldness to the eye---that sets him apart.

Minor Trickster (Lvl 4)
Dowkan, dwarf Fighter 6
Appearance: Nothing really stands out to distinguish Dowkan from many other dwarves. The deep tanned skin framed by his dark brown hair and beard and brown eyes are typical of many of his race. His equipment marks him as a warrior, particularly the finely crafted waraxe that rests across his back. The plain grey tunic is covered by the spiked full plate armor and matching breeches ending in a pair of sturdy well-crafted boots. He walks with a slight limp, favoring the right leg for those observant enough to notice such detail.Code:Name: Dowkan Jarand, Weradan Clan Class: Ftr6 Race: Shield Dwarf (Spine of the World) Size: Medium Gender: Male Alignment: Neutral Good Deity: Moradin Str: 18 +4 (13p.)

Background: Dowkan spent much of his adolescence exploring his homeland and some of the deeper cave systems. Though, being slightly short of temper and not overly popular at the best of times, much of this was undertaken when he accompanied clan patrols. As his ability and confidence grew, he gradually accompanied some of the longer range reconaissance patrols of his homeland. He took a particular liking to the waraxe during this time, admiring its style and the damage it could deal out in close-quarters when wielded in trained hands.
One unfortunate event turned his life upside down. Dowkan convinced a small group of friends, including a cousin, to join him exploring a distant cave system. To reach it required some overland travel. A day out from the Clan, the group was ambushed by some Hobgoblin slavers. Outnumbered and with no prospect of survival, Dowkan fought fiendishly, but fell helping defend his friends. After two days, he woke to find most of the others gone, and another dead dwarf.
On return to the Clan, he was held to blame for leading the others astray. The recriminations from even his own family and his own guilt grew too strong and he chose to leave his home rather than live as an outsider amongst his own people. In his own mind he had some ridiculous notion of freeing those friends who may have been captured and exacting a bloody revenge on the raiders. But without any real knowledge of what he was seeking, Dowkan left some days later without a word.
In all, his travels took him nearly 50 miles from the Spine of the World. His encounters along the way were generally neither overly exciting nor dangerous. However, one encounter with two bandits near the Hill of Vengor did allow him to vent some frustration at his plight and resulted in a gashed calf on his right leg that has left him with a slight limp, but in much better shape than the bandits.
Dowkan reached Silverymoon, and has spent some time as an axe-for-hire in the service of the Temple of Tyr. Dowkan took leave of service from Tyr when in Eveningstar. After drinking most of his liquid wealth, he has once again taken up paid service, though this time to work for the Cormyrian Crown.
